It was very much one of the scenic parks there. A very very relaxing place to go sit at & enjoy nature at its finest!!! Has a big fountain near the water & the breeze from it makes it even more pleasurable & not hot!...More

I enjoyed a day tooling around the Riverside historic area. Got my hair cut at Hair Peace, searching for treasures at Southern Crossings Antiques Mall and lunch at Hawkers. Grab your best friend and spend a low-key day in this charming historic area.

The area is beautiful with turn of the century home which are well preserved and each so different. I never tire of walking through. I see something new each time.

I hope is not going out of business. It was Monday at lunch and it was very empty. This is a very nice neighborhood and I hope they keep the business going. Support your local stores and restaurants.

Great neighborhood to stay in! Lots of food and parks in walking distance. If you have to visit Jacksonville it's a quiet and convenient area to stay in.

We stayed here for the weekend. It is only a small area and the Memorial Park only takes minutes to walk around. The side streets contain beautique shops and grand Victorian house. A great place to stroll around for a couple of hours.

There are Bed and Breakfast home on Riverdale ave, near the famous FIVE POINTS, there are lots of different restaurants, my fav is Derby, and lots of unique stores. As a hotel/motel your nearest stay will be downtown.
